Opticians in Weybridge | Lens Options Explained


Eye doctor Graham Johnson Optician Limited covers the Weybridge area with a wide range of differing spectacles and lenses to suit your needs. Our opticians provide a complete service that includes eye tests, eye examinations, contact lenses and designer frames, all to help with your vision and own personal comfort. On this page we’re concentrating on what type of lenses would suit you and how they work.


Single-Vision Lenses – The simplest form of spectacles or contact lenses are the single-vision lens. We make these to a single prescription to correct a particular eye issue for customers from Weybridge and Surrey. All concave lenses correct short sightedness; these are thinner in the centre than they are at the edge, and it’s the reverse for convex lenses. Most lenses are made of lightweight plastic and there’s a large range of spectacles and designer frames available to suit your prescription and lifestyle.


Bifocals and Trifocal Lenses – After we’ve completed all eye tests and eye examinations; one of our opticians will go through the different options available. Bifocals and trifocals are a popular lens that has dual and triple uses. Bifocals are primarily lenses that have a top half that corrects distance vision and a lower half for near vision. Trifocal spectacles have the added section that incorporates a correction for intermediate vision.


Varifocal Lenses – As any eye doctor in the Weybridge area will tell you, most opticians recommend varifocal lenses for correcting presbyopia (the eye aging process). These have no visible dividing lines between the different corrections. Instead they have a graduated section in which the power of the lens progresses smoothly to allow the wearer to see clearly over all distances.


High-Index and Aspheric Lenses – If you need high-powered lenses that have a similar vision to strong contact lenses, our eye doctor is on hand to help. High-index materials and aspheric designs can now be made thinner, lighter and better looking than traditional lens types.


Anti-Reflection Coating – Glass lenses can be provided by our optical goods retail store based close to Weybridge with coatings which virtually eliminate distracting reflections off the lens surfaces. Reduced reflected light is very helpful for high computer use and night drivers. The special coatings also improve the cosmetic appearance of your glasses and make thick lenses look thinner.



Designer FramesAvailable


As with our other lenses, we can provide prescription glasses or designer frames for everyday occupational use. One of our dispensing opticians will be more than happy to find the right glasses to suit your tastes at our optical goods retail store based in Hersham, near Weybridge.
